The great austerity (card) game – Part 8

So it’s been awhile, sorry about that!

tgtMuch to update you on, so will start babbling and see how long this blog post gets.

Whats first – Oh yes! TGT is out, (The Grand Tournament!) the second major expansion to the Heartstone universe. the expansion adds over 130 cards to the collection alone, but also with the patch came some useful things for the F2P’ers (Us free to play folk).

Hearthstone – My little digital debate

For anyone who cares I used to love paper CCG’s, Magic or Yo-gi-oh, but spent a large portion of my time playing a WWE CCG called RawDeal. It was fun, nerdy and actually VERY well supported by the WWE – so winners got to meet superstars, have replica-belts etc etc.

Then it got cancelled – Sad times.

So why Hearthstone over games like Magic?
The answer for me is pretty simple – Its digital.

Digital cards are the future. It will stay interactive, flexible and in Hearthstones case very very mobile. Shall i continue?

The great austerity (card) game – Part 2

So first few days have been pretty good.

Tutorial is better than I remember – working through that gives your a few simple quest rewards and some gold. Once that was done it was time to grind out the mage leveling.

Suck it Illidan - Cheater!

The great austerity (card) game – Part 1

It’s been a while since i posted anything game related on this site.
Mostly the site’s been relegated to a place where I bitch about people or derail relationships. So this is me aiming to correct this.

I may be a late starter to Blizzard’s online CCG – Hearthstone but I’ve rapidly been getting into it. Great YouTube people like TrumpSC and RyzanTV, both doing regular streams with the lure of adventure and fun deck designs.
